Crispy Duck Legs

When I shared my pictures and opinions of this recipe in the Kitchn's Cookbook Club Facebook group, my post started with, "Yall. Run and get some duck legs, so you can make the Crispy Duck Legs!" And now I'm telling anyone who reads this post the same! These are SO good. Honestly, I never thought... Continue Reading →

Seven Vegetable Couscous

Last night, the world in general, and American women in particular, lost an icon. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Notorious RBG, died at the age of 87. The tiny legal legend was a champion for equal rights for women and the queen of dissent on the Supreme Court. The news of her death hit me harder... Continue Reading →

Corn Risotto

For the few people out there who read our blog with any regularity, you already know that I love risotto. I love carbs in general, and the adaptability of risotto specifically. We've experimented with taking risotto in a lot of different directions before (see our other risotto recipes), but this summer-y version is a new... Continue Reading →

Classic Beef & Broccoli

Sticking with our Cookbook Club selection, we made another recipe from Grace Young's Stir-Frying to the Sky's Edge. This month has been incredibly fun, even though we didn't join in until closer to the end of August. Ms. Young actually joined the club Facebook group and offered tips, suggestions, and kind comments on all of... Continue Reading →

Stir-Fried Ginger Broccoli

It's been awhile. We say this a lot. We obviously don't use this blog to make money or to showcase a business, so it's the first thing to fall by the wayside when we're busy. Currently, we have a baby, both work full-time, and are navigating a pandemic, so our blog has drifted to the... Continue Reading →

Spicy Elotes

Our friend Amanda texted yesterday and asked if we had a good street corn recipe. We've never made it before, but I remembered seeing a recipe in one of our cookbooks. I broke it out for her, but realized that we had all the needed ingredients on hand ourselves (key since we're still trying to... Continue Reading →

Berry Lime Popsicles

Happy Fourth of July! I don't know about y'all but summer is definitely in full swing here. It was 92 degrees at 10am this morning! Even though it doesn't feel like summer, since we can't do many of the summery things we would normally be doing, the heat certainly reminds us of the season. One... Continue Reading →

Banh Mi Meatballs

The pandemic life means that we've been trying to limit our grocery store trips and only eating the food we have in the house. This has been good and bad for our cooking. It's forced some creativity that has been well-worth the effort, but other times it's just led to us eating the same thing... Continue Reading →

Baked “Tandoori” Chicken

I started off this pandemic era with increased energy for cooking and especially baking (see: Berry Pavlova with Chocolate Drizzle and Banana Chip Muffins), but recently I've swung to the opposite end of the spectrum. I think it's a little bit of COVID-depression... It's hard to get excited about cooking dinner, when your life consists... Continue Reading →
